Selena Gomez might be ready to move on to a professional management team rather than having her mom and stepfather handling her career, but there are a couple of people she forgot to tell: her mom and stepfather.
According to TMZ, Selena’s parents had no idea she was taking her career to a new manager until they read the TMZ story that originally broke the news — and they had no idea that the news was coming. Apparently, last month, Selena talked to them about finding a bigger management company, but hadn’t let them know she was definitely making the move.
“Selena’s mom Mandy Teefy says she and Selena sat down with the singer Thursday after TMZ’s story,” TMZ says, “and asked Selena if she was absolutely sure she wanted to move in a different direction. Selena said yes.”
Despite being in shock, Mandy says there are no hard feelings and that she can respect Selena’s decision.
The rumor mill says this recent move could be attributed to their disapproval of Selena’s relationship with Justin Bieber rather than putting her career in more professional hands. We hope Selena plans to keep the lines of communication open with her parents — if the Justin thing doesn’t work out again, she’ll want them in her corner.
Do you think Selena was right to fire her parents, or is this just a petty argument over Justin Bieber?
